To help GP teams and reception staff deal with queries from patients on treatments for COVID-19, NHS England have produced the attached fact sheet which explains the pathway.

The attached can be shared and printed for reception staff and will help ensure that potentially eligible patients receive an urgent triage call or review with the practice clinical team and, where appropriate, a referral to a COVID-19 Medicine Delivery Unit.

Full details on how GP teams can help support access to COVID-19 antivirals can be found in the letter issued to GPs in May 2022.
